An episode of "I Remember Mama" called "Madame Zodiac". Picture quality is awful, perhaps even horrific. Actual show is great, perhaps even wonderful. With some original commercials. Episode aired during 1950. A 50s-era show set in the 1910s, uploaded in the 2010s....think about that. May give you the sudden urge to drink coffee.

MAMA was a well-written show from the early days of television. This episode deals with the subject of scams and con-artists. Scams have gotten more sophisticated, but they are still something to look out for.
A fake fortune teller teams up with a distinguished looking gray haired gentleman to try to cheat Aunt Jenny out of her money.
There is a lot of belief in psychics still today and people who claim to have real psychic ability still manage to cheat people.

Mama and Madam Zodiac (Mama)
Original air date: 1950.
Cast: Ruth Gates (Aunt Jenny).
Do not forget that this episode was done in 1950; 62 years ago.
This is a very good written; well acted episode. It is a shame that we didn`t have series with simple valor but good valor today. It is a very good old time television.

This series premiered in July of 1949, yet you say this is the first episode and also say it's 1950. Something's wrong here ...
